Kagu Ra Zaka’s culinary expertise are to be had just moments from South Yarra station along Toorak Road. Just look for the paper lanterns on the corner with Forster Street. Once inside this renowned but affordable Melbourne Japanese restaurant you’ll be treated with the utmost courtesy, and able to choose from the full spectrum of traditional Japanese cuisine – entrees and soups, sushi and sashimi, classic main courses, rice and noodle dishes, and desserts. There are also fantastic banqueting options that really showcase the skill of head chef Jack Itou, who has appeared on Japanese cooking shows, cookbooks and magazines for over 25 years. Go for the Zaka banquet and indulge in a combination of sushi and sashimi, deep fried oysters with a Japanese barbecue sauce, baked scallops with sweet miso sauce, sukiyaki hot pot with porterhouse steak, veggies and udon, and deep fried banana wrapped in filo pastry to finish.
The food is Anazing, great staff and a cozy beautiful Japanese restaurant. The food is so fresh and tasty, some of the best and freshest Japanese food i have ever had!
The food was really nice. We loved the salmon salad. Staff are also friendly. Highly recommended to try with friends. Shall try out their sashimi in summer.
We had a delicious meal served very promptly and in a friendly manner in plenty of time to get us to the movies. It was just right. Great spot. Lovely atmosphere. We were very happy. It wasn't expensive.
Great little place! Very friendly staff, slight language barrier, but that only adds to the authentic feel. Food is fantastic! Fresh and vibrant, beautifully presented. No vegan choices, my daughters went with a bowl of steamed rice and a plate of steamed veggies. But plenty of vegetarian options. A great night out at a reasonable price. Highly recommended
We have been this restaurant for many times, and found unchanged nice Japanese dishes and good services. This is one of the most Japanese like restaurant in South Yarra, I am sure.
Nice quiet place to enjoy dinner. Great service from staff, nice atmosphere. But food was average. Glad I've given it a try, but won't go back in a hurry.
Poor service and below average food. It took a while to get the attention of the waitress to order anything. The place looks tired. Won't be returning.
